    • Caroline appears in the 1850 US Census for Erin, Stephenson, Illinois married to John J. Wilson (John I. Wilson in William Tanner , Sr. of South Kingstown, Rhode Island and His Descendants (the Tanner book) with a daughter Cornelia. The daughter's name was actually Ruth Amelia.

      Although the Tanner book says that Levi Lucas died in 1883, he is not listed in the household in the 1870 US Census. Caroline is listed first followed by her children Ruth (19), Alice (7) and Adelbert (4). Alice is listed in the Tanner book as Alta Eudora.

      In the 1880 Census Caroline was living in Oneco, Stephenson, Illinois, with her daughter Ruth who has married Thomas Werkheiser. Caroline's 14 y.o. son Charles Adelbert is also in the household.

      In the 1900 US Census Caroline is living by herself in Orangeville, Oneco Twp., Stephenson, Illinois in her own, unmortgaged house. [2, 3, 4, 5]
